When I first came to the Island I was often the only car on the 8 am and 5.15 pm ferries. Now the ferry is nearly always full at these times.
People often say what do you do when you miss the ferry? I reply I wait for it to come back as it is continuous when I go to work and when I come home.
Would a bridge help me to get to work quicker? Maybe by a couple of minutes but I would not enjoy seeing the morning sun reflected on the still waters of McMillan Straits, watch the water traffic or the majestic pelicans landing on the water as I would be driving my car and not enjoying my boat ride.
